I return to Milan feeling dead / (could have been worse) / something that has to do with the piperazine / (could have been better) / I have nine amphepramone pills / (in my gut) / they were for a guy from the State U with hair like spikes / At home I get lost and when I leave I lock myself out / then Tavor and lots of it so it works right away / but it wears off quick and I feel worse / and I don’t know what to do with myself / so I go sit in the bathroom on the wicker hamper / and start vomiting all over the place / one hundred eighty micrograms from Bologna / I no longer know where my body ends / on the fifth floor I seem to feel the road beneath my feet / colors are like sounds and odors make sound too / and the thoughts I think 99bottlesofbeer / and I think now I really am sick / I feel myself falling and I fall / next to the hamper / I feel myself fainting and I faint / I try to get up / the hamper faints too
